Producer: Serra Oca
Area: Serra de Montejunto, Portugal
They are near the Northwest slope of Serra de Montejunto, where they sought inspiration for the name of the wines. Their vineyards have a strong influence from the microclimate of the mountain because the prevailing winds from the Atlantic Ocean are blocked by this natural barrier and cause high levels of rain and morning fog, even in summer, which reflects in the freshness of their wines.
They have 20 hectares of vineyards, all surrounding the set of farmhouses. Their soils are clay-limestone, of fine clay, and have vineyard plots with sun exposure for all quadrants. After a few years without winemaking, they resumed winemaking in 2013 and created the Serra Oca brand. They intend to make quality wines, producing a total of about 10,000 bottles/year. They only use about 10% - 20% of the grape production for their wines -selling the rest of the grape production to partners who also value their quality.
